He had 7 pts and was -10 in 42 games. Detroit had turned it on, and were making a push up the standings in the West. Why would they keep a guy that wasn't contributing and ditch someone else that was?

It wasn't working out for Leino in Detroit (for whatever reason), and they were cap strapped and he couldn't be sent down to the AHL.

It was good management to get anything for Leino.
